Chambers Regional Spotlight

Chambers is on a mission to uncover and champion the best legal talent across the United States, wherever it exists, starting with shining a spotlight on leading small law firms in Texas.  

Published on 16 November 2022

What is Chambers Regional Spotlight?

Chambers Regional Spotlight is a showcase of leading, small law firms in a specific region. 

It is designed to highlight law firms who are doing remarkable work which results in an impressive regional reputation.  

The state of Texas, home to five of the top fifteen US cities by population is a thriving legal market with a number of distinct and growing legal centers.   

We sought to identify the leading small to medium-sized law firms offering a credible alternative to Big Law. The ranked firms were selected based on independent in-depth market analysis, coupled with an assessment of their experience, expertise and calibre of talent.  

We have spent the last six months delving deeper into the Texas legal market where we sought to identify the leading small and medium-sized law firms offering a credible alternative to Big Law.  

We have awarded a Chambers Regional Spotlight ranking to 85 law firms across 15 ranking tables in 6 cities within Texas.

Why did we do this?

Chambers insight into the legal market has seen a trend of large companies seeking specialized support from smaller firms at a state or local level, who can respond more effectively and efficiently to in-house counsel needs.

Chambers Regional Spotlight builds bridges between in-house counsel, who want more choice when purchasing legal services, and small to medium size firms.

Chambers Regional Spotlight will showcase the best small law firms in Texas this year and we hope to extend it to further states in the coming years.

A firm ranked in Chambers Regional Spotlight does not automatically feature within the USA Guide launched in June annually.
